“Inspired By” with Wendy Antenucci

Sometimes all it takes is a spark of inspiration from a fellow creative to get us excited to create, and today, Wendy Antenucci is sharing how she was inspired to document a special memory by a layout created from another one of our design team members! Let’s take a look!
Hello everyone, it’s Wendy here today with a layout inspired by Neela Nalam’s amazing labor of love layout from our August reveal gallery!

I was so captured by Neela’s use of the circles at the top of her page and the grid style layout that I just had to document a story using this same approach.

Supplies | September 2018 Kit, September Labels, Title Builder Vol 2 Wood Veneer, Hazel Alphabet Stamp, Right Now Stamp, Noteworthy Stamp, Noteworthy Bits and Pieces, Noteworthy Epoxy Stickers, Noteworthy Puffy Stickers, Noteworthy 6″ x 6″ Paper Stack, Noteworthy 12″ x 12″ Paper Collection
My page began with my large photo and the strip of colored paper forming my “photo block”. I also included the “the story of” 3″ x 4″ tag from the September Kit, as I wanted to have enough room to tell the story of this beach day.

Then the labor of love began! I punched out tons of 1.25″ circles from various 6″ x 6″ papers in the Noteworthy 6″ x 6″ Paper Stack. I’ll let you in on a little secret: I laid the circles out upside down on my grid cutting board. I was then able to take some thin washi and tape the strip of circles together. This allowed me to be able to move my circle row around until I found the perfect placement.

To make my title, I turned to my favorite pastime. I fussy cut the words from paper #3 in the Noteworthy 12″ x 12″ Paper Collection. To make my title stand out even more, I also used the word “good” from the Title Builder Vol 2 Wood Veneer.

Some heartfelt journaling was a must on this layout and I allowed my thoughts to take center stage so that the emphasis was on the precious memory captured.

Final little details were added with some Noteworthy Puffy Stickers and some stamping. While I don’t use large pictures often, it is a nice change in pace, but I do try to keep embellishments to a minimum in some instances.

What memories do you need to tell, both good and bad? Take the time today, be inspired and write your story, it can never be lost that way!
